We had a lovely meal celebrating two birthdays. Very varied menu with something for all tastes, excellent service and comfortable atmosphere. Good value for money and great two course menu for a Tuesday and Wednesday only £8.99.

We've been twice as a family and really enjoyed the food, service and drink. It's been busy in both occasions and that's added to the appeal rather than detract. Kids choice was great and I had the fish & chips or whale it should be called. As always my son likes the fact you can get Irn Bru in Scotland... More

We have tried to get in here before but found it fully booked which is usually a good sign. It's a trendy, modern nice looking bar bistro, the service was ok but the food was a big let down. Between us we had the steak pie, battered haddock and lamb shoulder all the dish were bland and flavourless, hard to... More

Went as 3 couples for a birthday and wasn't disappointed. The food was delicious and the cocktail menu was outstanding. We went on a Tuesday night when they do 2 courses for 8.99 and the choices were limited but there was something for everyone. The whipped goats cheese with lemon was a favourite. We booked in advance and I was... More
